Background
The murine macrophage cell surface glycoprotein F4/80 is a member of the epidermal growth factor-seven transmembrane (EGF-TM7) family. It is involved in the generation of antigen-specific efferent regulatory T cells that suppress antigen-specific immunity but not required for the development and distribution of tissue macrophages.
Although F4/80 is widely used as a marker of murine macrophage populations it is not equivalently expressed across tissue-specific macrophage lineages: e.g. red pulp macrophages of the spleen and Kupffer cells of the liver are F4/80-positive, white pulp and marginal zone macrophages of the spleen are F4/80-negative and alveolar macrophages are F4/80dim.
F4/80 expression is not restricted to macrophages, but also found in murine Epidermal Langerhans Cells; dendritic cells of the skin. The human ortholog of F4/80, EGF-like module containing mucin-like hormone receptor (EMR)1, is absent on mononuclear phagocytic cells including monocytes, macrophages, and myeloid dendritic cells and seems to be highly specific for eosinophils in humans.
